In November, the day before Thanksgiving of 2002, we adopted an amazing 7 month old puppy from Tri State Basset Rescue named Wally. He and his shih-tzu brother loved each other for 10 1/2 incredible years. He was a playmate to my 3 kids and a good TV buddy. He loved a good belly rub and running around the yard, barking at the neighbors. He was handsome and regal and I will miss him more than words can say. Today, Wally crossed over the rainbow bridge. I will be forever grateful that he was part of our lives and I know one day we will see him again. Thank you, Wally, for your love, loyalty and companionship. You took a piece of my heart with you.
